Cosmetic safety: here are the rules for a natural beauty, safe and aware. Also on the subject of beauty we have to be very careful about what is contained in the products we put on our skin, which must be effective, moisturizing, nourishing, anti-aging, but above all, sure!
In recent years came out new campaigns to sensitize women to the awareness of beauty products that use: spread a new way to get belle, respecting and not polluting the environment and without risking the animals. The green cosmetics and herbal medicine are increasingly growing, for a new green trend.=
There is an ingredient in particular that has begun a major battle: the micro-granules, which are tiny plastic particles found in scrub and Exfoliating. Are killing the skin, being a concentration of harmful chemicals that enter our body. Choose instead, natural exfoliants such as rice, lotus seeds, kernel, argan, rosehip and pumice powder, oatmeal or, as our grandmothers used to, table salt.
